With the support of Film Hub Wales (FHW), cinemas across Wales are exploring the timeless magic of Wales on screen this winter, bringing spells, spirits and folklore to Welsh audiences, through a season of films and events about Welsh witchcraft. Activities launch at Pontio Arts Centre in Bangor on the 28 October, where their ‘Witches Sabbath’ weekend will welcome Mari Elen Jones from Gwrachod Heddiw, an award-winning podcast which celebrates Welsh women and their connections to witchcraft.
Over the weekend, guests will also include director, Ffion Pritchard, of new short Welsh film Annwn, about a talented young witch and illustrator Efa Lois who specialises in folklore, flowers and Welsh witches.
The live, Welsh language, video podcast which will tour to Welsh cinemas, will explore the character of the Witch in cinema, the history of witchcraft in Wales, its revival and the modern Welsh witch. Events are confirmed at SeeMôr Film Festival (Anglesey), Neuadd Dwyfor (Pwllheli), Wicked Wales (Rhyl) and here at Chapter in Cardiff. Visit Film Hub Wales' website to find out more.
